There are many great answers to this dilemma, though the best all include one thing: being close to where that great Chardonnay is produced. And no one has yet equaled the greatest Chardonnays of Burgundy.
While I may personally prefer Chablis, the world recognizes the Côte de Beaune, with vineyards like Corton Charlemagne, Montrachet and Meursault, as the epitome of what can be achieved with Chardonnay. So taking my cue from the masses that know best, I took a look to see what a luxury getaway to Beaune might look like.
Glorious hotels, fine food and interesting side trips are all part of this fantasy league travel.
